HB/SB Updates

Predictable Recording Fees

ILTA’s Legislative Committee, under the direction of Co-Chairs Paul Presney Jr and Patrick Quist, have collaborated with the County Clerks & Recorders Association in preparing a county by county predictable recording fee legislation. This bill will eliminate many of troublesome areas of page counts and subsequent under or over charges with standard residential and commercial transactions. Watch for updates and “call for action” to help get this important legislation passed.

The ILTA will publish weekly legislative updates when the Illinois General Assembly is in session. These updates will show our position on these bills. In addition, on key legislation ILTA will provide a narrative on how a particular bill impacts an ILTA member at the closing table.
